villon painting


Poet of the medieval street, saint of the ancient underground:
left a paper sealed, being three articles of his last will:

"I owe much; I have nothing; I give the rest to the poor."

"One thing about the music for sure, it rocks with the rhythms of dance. The lyrics say the same thing that poet singers in the student hangouts in the Paris Latin Quarter say today...

Villon is the very archetype, the poet laureate of 500 years of the counterculture. So clearly does he speak for a way of life that his name has become a common noun & adjective in European languages."

Kenneth Rexroth, Subversive Aspects of Popular Songs

France: The Last Word?: Poet François Villon, recently arrested, tortured & condemned to be hanged ("pendu et étranglé"), has his sentence commuted to banishment today. There is no further record of Villon after that date. Among the many depictions of Villon, Bertolt Brecht's Baal is the main character in the play of the same name, is modeled after Villon, & Ezra Pound's opera Le Testament takes passages from Villon for its libretto, & songsters such as Wolf Biermann wrote "Ballade auf den Dichter Francois Villon", Georges Brassens song "Ballade des dames du temps jadis", puts Villon's poem into music.

"The Internationale"

Arise ye starvelings from your slumbers,
Arise ye prisoners of want,
For reason in revolt know thunders,
And at last ends the age of cant.
So away with all your superstitions
Servile masses, arise, arise,
We'll change henceforth the old tradition
And spurn the dust to win the prize.

1903 -- Emma Goldman, anarchist feministUS: In an effort to mobilize broad support from American citizens for John Turner, Emma Goldman acts under the pseudonym E. G. Smith to form a permanent New York City chapter of the newly formed Free Speech League (founded in 1902 by Theodore Schroeder).

Most American historians & legal scholars incorrectly assume that controversies & litigation about free speech began abruptly during World War I. However, there was substantial debate about free speech issues between the Civil War & WWI.

Important free speech controversies, often involving the activities of sex reformers, anarchists & labor unions, preceded the Espionage Act of 1917.

Scores of legal cases presented free speech issues. A significant organization, the Free Speech League, became a principled defender of free expression two decades before the establishment of the ACLU in 1920.

WWI produced a major transformation in American liberalism. Progressives who had viewed constitutional rights as barriers to needed social reforms came to appreciate the value of political dissent during its wartime repression. They subsequently misrepresented the prewar judicial hostility to free speech claims & obscured prior libertarian defenses of free speech based on commitments to individual autonomy.

Jehan RictusLe revenant
Soliloque du pauvre

Voui, qu'y z'y pionc'nt dans leur purin
Fait d'or,d'laideurs et d'arrogance:
Vrai, y manqu'nt par trop d'élégance.
Y m'dégoût'nt mes contemporains!
Et c'est affreux et si tell'ment
Malpropre, obscur et délétère,
Qu'on s'figurait qu'les z'éléments
Sont sous le régime parlementaire...

Jehan Rictus, anarchist poet


Si qu'y r'viendrait! Si qu'y r'viendrait,
L'Homm' bleu qui marchait su' la mer
Et qu'était la foi en balade...
L'mec qu'était gobé par les femmes
(Au point que c'en était scandaleux)
L'Homme aux beaux yeux, l'Homme aux beaux rêves,
Eul' l'charpentier toujours en grève,
L'artiss, le meneur, l'anarcho,
L'entrelardé d'cambrioleurs
(Ça s'rait-y paradoxal?
L'gas qu'a porté su'sa dorsale
Eune aut'croix qu'la Légion d'honneur!)

A lie, but White had already been convicted in the court of public opinion.

Ministers & conservatives charged that Rock-n-Roll musicians were part of a communist plot. Next up, that commie agent Beloved & Respected Comrade Leader President Ike, we suspect. Yup.

But as I leave I want you to know — just think how much you're going to be missing. You won't have Nixon to kick around anymore, because, gentlemen, this is my last press conference ...... "

"I hope that what I have said today will at least make television, radio & the press first recognize the great responsiblity they have to report all the news, &, second, recognize that they have a right & a responsibility, if they're against a candidate, to give him the shaft, but also recognize if they give him the shaft, put one lonely reporter on the campaign who will report what the candidate says now & then."
